  • Jethro Bovingdon pits the McLaren P1 against the Porsche in our most epic track battle yet.

    LaFerrari vs McLaren P1 vs Porsche Spyder. Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe is one of the fortunate few to have now driven all three of the latest hypercars – so.

    The McLaren P1 and the Porsche Spyder might as well be It has its small- displacement, high-revving V-8 with a flat-plane crank, and it's.

    The Ferrari feels quickest in a straight line, just, followed closely by the P1 with the being merely incredible back in third place. This is thrilling - and sounds like a technological apocalypse in the cabin, but out here, on the real roads and with real bumps and cambers and grease and oil, the McLaren makes you concentrate a bit too much. Also, no owner will ever care about reliability, usability or durability; that's for cheap cars, out there in non-Gulf Loserland. What has become most vividly etched in my mind over the last couple of days is how different each of these cars approaches the brief.

    Three very different hypercars, all unleashed upon the world at broadly the same time, with spookily similar levels of potential to amaze and entertain their lucky owners. Never before has the uber-wealthy car enthusiast been so well catered for, and perhaps the most extraordinary thing about the latest chapter in the history of the hypercar is that most of them are already sold out.

    McLaren hint that next generation P1 hypercar could be fully-electric. The rarest will be the McLaren P1 , with just being made, then LaFerrari on , with Porsche hoping to find homes for Spyders. Having been one of the very fortunate few to drive all three, albeit on separate occasions and in different circumstances, here are some initial thoughts about how they compare. The Ferrari feels quickest in a straight line, just, followed closely by the P1 with the being merely incredible back in third place.

    But the P1 feels torquier and therefore more explosive in the mid range than the Ferrari. Which is ridiculous considering how ballistic the LaFerrari feels between rpm and its ear-splitting rpm rev limiter.

    Steve Sutcliffe straps in to see. What separates them mostly obviously here, though, is the way they harness and redeliver their electric power. In the and P1 you quite quickly run out of e-puff if you drive them hard for sustained periods, and the only real way to get it back is to slow down a bit until the batteries can regenerate, mainly via the engine in the P1 on a small throttle opening in a high gear or via the brakes in the In the Ferrari , however, you harvest power all the time, and there is no 'e-mode' as such.

    As a result, you have access to the full bhp all of the time, which effectively means you have another couple of hundred horsepower to play for much of the time. The Porsche feels heavier on its feet than the others generally, and from memory it understeers a touch more when you push it hard, again almost certainly the result of it weighing a good kg more than the P1 and around kg more than LaFerrari.

    The Ferrari also makes the best noise — by far. They each sound completely fascinating in their own individual way, however, so choosing the best noise — much like choosing the best handling set-up, the best steering and even the best car — is always going to be subjective ultimately.

    Having said that, the P1 definitely feels stiffer and generates less roll than the LaFerrari , even in its most comfortable setting — but it also feels more refined somehow than the , which has the noisiest drive-train of the three. One day soon we sincerely hope we will put all three of these cars on the same piece of road, at the same time, and come up with The Answer. Read our LaFerrari first drive here.

    Enter your email address below: Because whatever you do to a single clutch gearbox, it has to stop the power delivery, disengage clutch, change gear and reingage clutch and that always takes longer than a twin clutched continually engaged powertrain, which is faster changing and , more importantly smoother, without the peak shock loads of the single clutch box. I was thinking that you took a very very good single clutch gearbox like the one from a F Scuderia which was lightning quick if a little brutal you could utilized the torque from the electric motor to sustain the momentum during gear changes thus smoothing out the process and negating the benefits that the dual clutches have.

Factor in the raw speed of the cars and the whole theatre of it, im amazed unless you really did drive them back to back or side by side drag, not just standing but rolling from different speeds that you could really say. Look at the amount of Joe publics who think their diesels are rocket ships because of the torque delivery skewing the actual performance.
